PAGE THIRTY-EIGHT ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 12,1963 Alton Hosts Quincy As Grid Season Begins By DON PLARSKI THogrnph Sports Editor Alton High School's colors arc rfd and pray, but it'll be a little green around the edges Friday night when thr Redhirds open their season with a home game against Quincy. Kickoff time is si-hedulrd for 8:30 at West Junior High School's oval, home field for Coach Ralph McClain's charges. Inexperience accounts for t h e preen tint and Alton has plenty of it. Onlv six Mtennen returned this school year and all six will be in the starting lineup againsi Clell Wade's Blue Devils. Three of the vets are In the bnrkfirld In Alton's pro- type offense. At left halfback will he Andrew Johnson, 165- pounder of track fame, bnt a lad who eame on strong the second hnlf of last season when fhe Redhirds finished ttith a 7-2 record. The flanker back position will go to Otis Hall, 175-pound senior, who held down a linebacking spot on defense last year, but will KO both ways this time. The other vet in the backfield is 185-pound fullback, Leroy Johnson, he, too, of track fame. The other three lettermen are in the line — 215-pound K e n n y Best at right tackle, 170-pound Dirk Ehlert at right end and 190- pound Vic Schwartz at center. Ten of Ihe 11 starters are seniors with only 175 pound left guard Dick Saunders an underclass- man. He is a junior. ftrent Owilllm, 170, gets the nod nt quarterback. He. h « s been throw-In); well and handling the hall well In practice sessions. The left side of the Alton line will be anchored by 211-pound tackle David Walls, a senior whom many expect great things of this season. "We're hurling at guards," says McClain. "Neither one i s very heavy." Pat Purcell. 155, will man one guard spot with Saunders at the other. Lightest man in the line is left end Paul Caldwell at 145: How ever, he is reported to be a good blocker despite his lack of pounds. Alton started Its season in 1962 with a resounding 35-0 walloping of the Blue Devils at Q Stadium in Qiiincy. Could be a different tale this year. The Redbirds are shallow at quarterback. Expected to back up Gwillim at quarterback was junior Dave Joehl. But, he suffered a recurrence of a knee injury in practice Tuesday while carrying the ball on an option play. Joehl may be lost for the season and perhaps the rest of his high school career. His knee was operated on during the winter after he originally injured the knee as a sophomore. Joehl was being counted on as a first stringer on defense at a corner linebacking post. Qulnc.v comes to town with seven lettermen in the start- Ing offensive lineup. Eight of the starters are seniors, the other three juniors. All four four ba.'kfield positions will be held down by lettermen. Steve Gustison, a 150-pound senior, quarterbacks the Devils. He was a regular last season, although he failed to start against Alton in both teams' opener last year. Not one of the players Friday night for Quincy was in the starting lineup last year against Al ton, Alton will have the weight advantage.The Redblrds average 180 In the line, 174 In the backfield and 178 as a team. Quincy shows a 179- pound average up front, 160 In the backfield and 171'/i overall. The duels between the tackles on each team snould be good UnderclassmenMark Marquette, Panther Lineups in Opener JERSEYVILLE — Ten underclassmen will be in the starting lineups Friday night when the Marquette Explorers and Jerseyville Panthers kick off the 1963 prep season on the letter's field at 8 o'clock. Five juniors will be in the opening lineup for each team. Starting juniors for Jersey- vllle are Bob Kuebrick, a 178-pound left guard; Pepper Martin, a 192-pound junior center; Larry Muntz, 175- pound right tackle; J i m Trask, a 151-pound right halfback; and Craig Whltlock, a 190-pound fullback.

LOUIS — The St. Louis Football Cardinals got down to the required limit of 37 players Wednesday by releasing veteran guard Gerry Perry and rookie guard Don Estes. Perry, a tormer University of California player, IB a nine-year vet of the league, lie did the place kicking for the Big Red «ftor being acquired from the Detroit Lion* four yean ago. Estes was drafted from Louisiana State. Perry and Estes' departure leaves three guards—Ken Gray, Ed Cook and Sam Silas of Southern Illinois University. The Cardinals open their regular season Saturday night at Dallas. The game will be televised over Channel 2 (KTVI) at 9 p.m. Wisconsin has won two Big Ten football titles in the lust 63 years. Coach Milt Bruhn guided the Badgers to both of them. By BOB GREEN Associated Press Sports Writer Coach Allie Sherman stoutly maintains that his New York Giants are sound, in fact "we might have the best team in the last three years." But the coach of the defending Eastern Division champions in the National Football League made a move that indicates he's far from overloaded in talent going into the weekend opener against Baltimore. Sherman, whose Giants won just two of five ' exhibition games, droppd Jim Pace, a 'halfback, from the roster Wednesday. That put the Giants one man under the 37-player roster limit. "It will give us a,-,, little room to pick up a playerjtelsewhere if we desire," Shermatf;,explained. Baltimore, which lost only once in five exhibitions—and that with Johnny Unitas out of action—is a sligght favorite. Unifal sat out the final exhibition with a sore shoulder but is reported ready for full time action against the Giants. The Green Bay Packers, defending league champions, are reported at full strength for their opener against the Chicago Bears. They bolstered their defensive secondary Wednesday with the acquisition of halfback Jerry Norton from Dallas. The Bears also are expected to be at full strength. There is some doubt about San Francisco's troubled 49ers, however. John Brodie, their No. 1 quarterback, has an injured throwing arm and his status is undetermined for the opener against ambitious Minnesota. The season opens with two Saturday night games, St. Louis at Dallas and Detroit at Los Angeles. Sunday, New York is at Baltimore, Washington at Cleveland, Minnesota at San Francisco and Pittsburgh at Philadelphia. The American Football League, in its second week of regular season play, has Boston at San Diego and Denver at Houston in Saturday night games and Buffalo at Oakland Sunday. rice Williams at left halfback. For Marquette Tom GUI- nee, a 170-pound senior, is at left end; Ben Todaro, a 172- pound senior, is at left guard; Bill Haine, a 158-pound senior, Is at right guard; <f I m Wickenhauser, a 160-pound senior, is at right end; Tom Tneth, a 167 - pound senior, Is at quarterback; and Randy Baker, a 191-pound senior, is at fullback. Friday night's game marks the first encounter between the two teams. Jerseyville dropped. Kincaid from its 1962 schedule while the Explorers dropped . Hadley Tech. . Both Joe Jurkanin of Jerseyville and Ron Holtman of Marquette employ a single wing attack with Marquette occasionally running from the T. Marquette has a heftier though less - experienced line than the Panthers. The Explorers average 177 pounds per man whHe Jerseyville has a 168-pound line average. In the backfield both teams are nearly evenly matched in the weight department. The total weight for Jerseyville is 667 while Marquette weighs in at 166. Overall, Jerseyville will be conceding five pounds per man to the Explorers. A year ago, Marquette finished runnerup to Belleville Cathedral in the Catholic league, and had an overall 4-4-1 record while the independent Panthers turned in a 5-3-1 mark.

LOUIS—These four members of the St. Louis Cardinals pitching staff have been mainly responsible for the Redbirds surge toward the top of the National League. They are (left to right) Bob Gibson, Ray Sadecki, Curt Simmons and Ron Taylor. The quartet Sadecki With Taylor's Help Beats Cubs ST. LOUIS (AP) — Three straight shutouts, five consecutive victories, winners of 14 of their last 15-garties —: but still three games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers. . That's the capsule summary on the blistering St. Louis Cardinals as they roar down the pennant stoetch. Ray Sadecki, Ron Taylor and Mike Shannon, some of the Redbirds' lesser lights, moved the! Cardinals to their fifth consecutive victory Wednesday night over the stumbling Chicago Cubs. Sadecki and Taylor teamed for 4-0 victory, the third straight shutout in the series. Curt Simmons pitched a six-hit 6-0 victor}' Monday and Bob Gibson followed with a six-hit 8-0 win. In the 27 innings, the four Cardinal hurlers have held the Cubs to 17 hits and no runs. The Cardinals opened the SCOT- ing in the second against Dick Ellsworth (20-9). Consecutive sin- lies by sore-ribbed Dick Groat, Bill White and Ken Boyer loaded the bases with none out. The runs scored on a sacrifice fly by grand- pappy Stan Musial and an infield! out by Curt Flood. ] The Cubs got rid of Sadecki i (9-8) in the sixth inning, though the young left-hander had allowed only four hits. But wildness caused his removal after he put ;wo runners on base with two out. | Taylor, a rookie right-hander, I came in and stifled the Cubs on! one hit the rest of the way. Shannon, a little-used rookie outfielder, replaced Musial for defensive purposes. Hu c irne to bat in the eighth inning with one on and two out and promptly lushed his first major league home run to make the score 4-0. The victory kept the Cardinals 3 games behind the equally red- hot Dodgers, who pasted the Pittsburgh Pirates 9-2. In today's finale of the four- game set, Ernie Broglio (15-8) will face former teammate Larry Jackson (14-14). CHICAGO (0) CARDINALS (4) has pitched 30 consecutive innings of scoreless baseball.
